Answer #1

Question is not yet clear for me but I will answer even though I will explain it clearly and u can place the number above u get it number of shares

Here dividend given is 'x'(Number not clear for me) is 10% for 100% =X*100/10 we will get number of shares issued then that value be y(u can calculate the value) for 9 months =Y*9/12 you will get 9 months shares then we have to find out 3 months share

X+Y=total shares if you can get 3 months share just multiply with 3 and divided by 12 u can get 3 months share

By this we get 12 months share i.e X+Y

And stock split is irrelevant for calculating shares as on dec31
